Materials:
 1. Magazines - 2 or 3 per student; include many areas of interest 2. Construction paper of assorted colors 3. Glue 4. Scissors
Introduction:
 It is surprising what range of knowledge and interests our students have when we take time to find out. This activity gives all of you students a chance to reflect on who you are and then to share that information in a fun way with the rest of the class.
Development:
 Teachers can create a collage of themselves and present it to the class to demonstrate how to make and present the collage. Alternatively, teachers can create a collage of student from another class and present it to the class to demonstrate how to make and present the collage.
Practice:
 1. Individually students will cut pictures or word phrases out of magazines that represent their personal interests and abilities. 2. The pictures and words will be glued onto an 8x11 sheet of construction paper to form a collage. 3. The completed collages will be displayed and numbered. 4. Without discussion students will be given time to write down who they think each collage belongs to.
Closure:
 Each collage will be identified by its owner and s/he will be allowed to explain what the symbols stand for. Students love this activity. They also like for the collages to be displayed for a couple of weeks and from time to time they will make comments about things they should have included on their own or should have been on a fellow students. Students love to find out about each other. They also love to have teacher do one!
